Resistance Rises Against Michigan Governor As Biden Running Mate Decision Draws Near

Very interesting…

It seems that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is watching her chances of being chosen as Joe Biden’s vice president for the upcoming election are getting slimmer by the minute as more and more resistance to her governorship rises up after two very unflattering stories emerge about her and how she’s handled the coronavirus pandemic in her state.

However, she’s not alone in scrutiny. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico is also being criticized for her handling of the crisis.

The criticisms of both women have happened simultaneously, after reports emerging detailing how they violated their own lockdown rules for personal benefit.

In April, Lujan Grisham reportedly purchased jewelry from a close friend who runs a store in Albuquerque despite issuing an order just days before, asking that New Mexicans only leave home for food and medical supplies.

“We are in really tough financial times as a state. It mirrors the incredible, personal sacrifices that happen every single day because people have limited their ability to work, telecommuting, and many people, in fact, have lost their jobs,” she said on April 3.

Lujan Grisham’s office maintains that she did not violate the order because the transaction was “entirely contact-free,” as Lujan Grisham had a friend pick up the purchased piece of jewelry at the owner’s home. Republicans in the state noted that curbside pickup from stores wasn’t allowed until May 1, weeks after Lujan Grisham bought the jewelry.

The New Mexico Republican Party posted up a tweet on Wednesday saying, “Our Governor is the latest Democrat to decide that the rules they impose on their citizens to address the COVID-19 pandemic don’t apply to her. A bombshell report reveals that the governor violated her own stay-at-home order to stock up on some high-end jewelry.”

A day before that, Gov. Whitmer addressed reports concerning whether or not her husband had used her name at a dock in order to get their boat placed in the water faster ahead of the rush from Memorial Day weekend.

Whitmer went on to claim this was a “failed attempt at humor,” saying, “My husband made a failed attempt at humor last week when checking in with a small business that helps with our boat and dock up north,” Whitmer said during a press conference Tuesday. “Knowing it wouldn’t make a difference, he jokingly asked if being married to me might move him up in the queue. Obviously, with the motorized boating prohibition in our early days of COVID-19, he thought it might get a laugh. It didn’t.”

All of this comes as the time for Biden to pick his running mate draws closer and closer. The former vice president spoke with donors during a fundraising event on Wednesday, saying he would announce his choice around August 1, noting his staff was in the process of making “basic cuts” of the candidates.

“I want to make sure that wherever I speak to, whoever I have, has some qualities that I don’t possess, as well as is willing to, in fact, tell me the truth, but also do it in a way that is between the two of us between her and me so that they can, in fact, be completely candid with me because I want to have people around me that have strengths and capacities I don’t,” Biden commented.

Israeli Prime Minister Has Historic Meeting With Saudi Prince In Saudi Arabia

Published

on

In a historic first for both Israel and Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held a meeting in the city of Neom, Saudi Arabia. This is the first time that a publicly acknowledged meeting between a prime minister of the Israeli government and high-level officials of the government of Saudi Arabia has ever taken place. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended the historic event, along with Israeli Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen. https://twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1330773342295646210 via The Daily Wire: The meeting is the latest development in the ongoing growth of Arab nations rejecting their previous hostility toward Israel and joining in the effort to counter Iran, which they see as the gravest threat to peace in the Middle East. Those developments were fostered by the Trump administration, which rejected the dangerous Iran nuclear deal embraced by the Obama administration and instead concentrated on bolstering relations between Israel and the surrounding Gulf states. The astonishing rapidity of Arab nations such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan all joining the Abraham Accords within three months in 2020 represented a historic shift in the Middle East, nurtured by President Trump. It’s not surprising that Israel and Saudi Arabia would go public with the meeting between Netanyahu and the Saudi prince; they must be worried that a prospective Biden administration would coddle the despotic Iranian regime as the Obama administration did. Of course, all of these great strides toward peace in the Middle East could easily be destroyed if President Trump is not certified to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Former Vice President Joe Biden has already made it very clear he will rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, which will no doubt strain our relationship with Israel and many other nations in the region.

Leader For Warp Speed Program Says First Americans Could Receive COVID Vaccine In December

Published

on

Moncef Slaoui, the head of the U.S. coronavirus vaccine program, made an appearance on CNN over the weekend where he said that the first doses of the coronavirus vaccine could be administered to Americans around December 11. “Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval, so I expect maybe on day two after approval on the 11th or the 12th of December,” Slaoui said. According to Slaoui, the efforts to get a vaccine ready as quickly as possible and distribute it among Americans is not going to be derailed if there happens to be a change in administration. via Newsmax: “All decisions are made, the train is running. Whether one administration or the other doesn’t, frankly, make a difference,” Slaoui said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The operation “has been isolated from the administration, from the political environment, and the political context,” said Slaoui, a former head of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccines operation. Yet information on the program isn’t been shared with the incoming Biden administration, he said, consistent with President Donald Trump’s failure to acknowledge his election loss. “I have been informed that I should not be saying anything that’s confidential to anybody, including, you know, anybody that’s not part of the administration, and therefore, I’ll act according to what the legal requirements are,” Slaoui stated. To summarize, Slaoui is saying that if President Trump’s lawsuits and recounts turn out to prove that Joe Biden really is the rightful president, the change in administration will not result in delays for the vaccine getting out to the people. Hopefully, this vaccine will turn out to be safe and effective, allowing folks to choose how they want to protect themselves and their loved ones from infection in the future.
